Suggest me solution to create a REXX program, to check the access for the datasets under the highest qualifier.

Say example: My highest Qualifier is ABC.*.

Datasets listed under this.

ABCD.TRIB.cobol
ABCD.TRIB.JCL
ABCD.TRIB.report(GDG)
ABCD.TRIC.vpil(VSAM)

I made a try using the command
ADDRESS TSO LD DA ('Dataset name') GEN AU.
But I got an error stating that 'RACF product disabled , Command ended'

What security product do your site use instead of RACF ?

And the best people to discuss this with would be your own security admin people.

I am not aware of those security information.
Could you suggest me some other ways to find it out.

I suggest you become aware.

Your manager or your manager's manager should know. . . Also, the system support people should know.

No dick, we are unable to get the relevant info from my client.
They said that won't give us previlleges to execute the RACF related commands.

Is there any way in REXX to
1.View the dataset
2.check the return code
- Identify whether we have view access to the dataset.


Or Suggest me alter method

Hello,

If you or your management asks the client which security software is in use, they will tell you. . .

And that is very typical - you probably have no need to execute racf commands. . .

Are you aware of some dataset name that you know you are not permitted to access? If so, try to access it and see what you get for an error. Then code for that error. . .
